    When talking about antisemitism, people often think about the Nazi regime and contemporary antisemitism; maybe about the Spanish Inquisition and other events within the past couple of centuries. However, antisemitism has been expressed in visual art since the early Middle Ages. This and other types of discrimination were encouraged by political and religious powers, all which paved the way to persecution and genocide. Jews have been depicted as monsters, sub-humans, animals or even demons.

    Join our professional guide and lecturer, Claudia, for a repeat of this thought-provoking lecture. It was such a smash in February that we feel compelled to offer it again. See an array of paintings, sculptures, reliefs and gargoyles through the ages, each providing clear evidence of an antisemitic agenda. These images were the political cartoons and posters of the age…and most remain visible today.
